We eat here before we go to see shows at the Freight and Salvage. Easy to reserve online at Open Table. I like the varied menu and I often try something new. Good vegetarian selections.

We've been going here for a number of years on Sundays before matinees at Berkeley Repertory Theatre and have always enjoyed the food and friendly service. Only recently have reservations become necessary which only attests to its popularity

Food pretty good, though.

We like to eat here before going to plays at Berkeley Rep which is down the street. On this visit, we had the coconut milk pad thai, crispy rice salad with chicken, duck curry, and pineapple coconut rice. We all loved our food. The service e is always gracious and efficient.

The food was fresh and delicious. The flavors literally popped in your mouth.

This was my first time at this restaurant and I would go back!

Between the traditional green papaya salad (which is spicy; believe their scorecard.) and the grilled salmon salad (salmon fillet was tasty and moist), I can't argue with the food. But the acoustics made my dining partner so uncomfortable, we had to leave before I had finished my salad. I did take it home and enjoyed it just as much there. IF noise doesn't bother you, then give it a whirl!

I'm a veg: I ordered the pah ram, but received an order of pad thai. Service was a bit slow, and we had a show, so I ate what I was given. It was good. The thai ice tea there is amazing!

There is probably no Thai person in the kitchen.... I wonder why people like this place on Yelp? They ran out of Duck so we couldn't order their signature dish - Duck & Mango roll...had the Jicama & Green Papaya Salad, Crispy Rice Salad, Beef Pra Ram, Chicken Satay & Crab Fried Rice... Sorry but we are not going back.
